While the Als were only 7-7, Quote-machine Patrick Levels said no team has dominated the Als this year. The Als problem is they beat themselves. With the regular season over, he no longer wants to discuss that subject. Levels then guarantees an Als win against Hamilton and starts to call out the Ti-Cat players. Media is amused with Herb Zurkowsky wondering aloud about a future when Levels is no longer there to give them writing material.
Under than the usual bumps and bruises, William Standback gave no specific injury as the reason he came out in the 2nd quarter. He said he could have stayed in the game if that is what the coaches had wanted. Stanback says he is now 100% and is ready for Hamilton.
When Danny Maciocia shows up, Herb Zurkowsky says Patrick Levels has motivated him enough to be inserted into the Als defense. Maciocia jokes that Zurkowsky is unable to cover and could not get onto the field. Maciocia then tells everybody that it is Zurkowsky's fault for Levels giving out quotes that could be turned into bulletin board material for Hamilton.
Maciocia said he gave himself 3 weeks to sign the 4 OL. He started the middle of last week and in a span of 72 hours, he got all 4 under contract.
Khari Jones said taking the Redblacks lightly was not the reason why they lost. Jones did not regret not dressing Cameron Artis-Payne as he could not have predicted what would happen. He declined to answer whether or not Artis-Payne dresses for the Hamilton game. Jones then laughs and says if they wanted to, the media could bait Patrick Levels every week into making Alouette win guarantees.
He said the difference between this year and the 2019 team so far is that the 2019 squad was able to make a few plays when it was needed.
Tony Washington was held out today for precautionary reasons as today was a walk-through. He is expected to practice on day 1. Right now, he has not been ruled out for the Hamilton game.
David Menard was experimenting at being the long-snapper.
Frederick Plesius was the only injury from the last game.
Looks like the team will be at full strength (almost everybody healthy) for the Eastern Semi-Final.
Both David Brown and Mario Alford have been added to the active roster.
Frederick Plesius to the injured list. Reshard Cliett to the practice roster.
